Inside our "Dress Issue," you'll find everything from gowns with elaborate pleats and an abundance of ruffles to short dresses with flirty feathers and tea-length beauties with colorful sashes. For the guys, we've provided a clothing checklist for the wedding (especially important the day of) so nothing (including socks!) is left back at the hotel. Also in this issue, we offer the lowdown on castle weddings in the U.S. (yes, they do exist); how to get a perfect, natural-looking tan that won't leave you looking orange; and the best beach resorts in Mexico, complete with tips on how to choose great-tasting tequila, what souvenirs to bring back from your honeymoon, and useful phrases translated into Spanish. ¡Que maravilloso!
